Steve Trevor has played an important part in the Wonder Woman mythos, and actor Chris Pine will be tasked with bringing the character's charm, physicality, and humor to the big screen in the upcoming film.
That includes a few scenes before he ever meets Wonder Woman, and a new photo from the film shows him next to favorite plane (via Continental Film).

Last year Pine described the difference between Wonder Woman and other films of its ilk to Jimmy Kimmel. "It takes place in World War I. I think what's really neat about it, is that with all of the Thors and Captain Kirks - I feel like, with men at the helm, it's always a revenge cycle thing. It's an eye for an eye, 'we're going to get the bad guys' and then the bad guys are defeated," he said explaining the differences with this film. "What I think is really lovely, with having a woman at the helm of this, there's a great deal more compassion and love at the center of the story, which for something as big as a film that this is going to be, and the eyes that will watch it, I think it's a wonderful - the little bit we can do to hopefully inch this universe toward not being as aggressive and violent."
